Car Spotting Adventures: 1966 Datsun Truck Double-cab Pickup - U520
April 16, 2017
Two-door, double-cab pickups (utes) of the 60's/70's are one of my favourite body styles in Japan's Kyusha world. Styling is always on-point.
The 520 Series Truck was built from May 1965 to 1969. This Truck pickup was built in 1966. It has a 1,299cc inline 4 engine.
